unrealistic taxi thrust

Recommended Posts

Guest

I always have to wind the engines up to 55-65% N1 to get the damnthing to move! I am not a real pilot but I hear 767 pilots say that even with allot of fuel, 767's seem to want to roll at idle.I know that tweeking is not a very good idea as it would create some other nuisances but its just annoying to have to hear engines startscreeming just to taxi. Any suggestions?thanks, Alex CYUL :-wave Don't count the years in your life, count the life in your years.Pentium III 933MHz256megs ram30.7 gig HDVisionTek GeForce2 Ti 64MB DDR52x CD-ROMCable modemWindows XPTTX 17" monitorLG12x8x32x cd-rwCH products flightsim yoke USB LECH products Pro Pedals USB

It's one of the few (very few) faults with PIC. In order to make the thrust values in the air as accurate as possible, they had to sacrifice some of the realism on the ground.Kind of frustrating, but I understand the PIC team's reasoning.Jon (KSEA)

This is not a PIC fault, it is a Microsoft fault. Thrust modelling on the engines is correct, it's the friction coefficient of the scenery that's wrong.Regards,Wade

Reminds me of a joke:It's not the pilot's fault, it's not the plane's fault, it's the asphalt!!!!!!!!!Just kidding!!Having said that, I'd rather have a not so realistic taxi behavior, but a far more realistic behavior in the air and PIC is great there!!Francois
